Probably not a real issue, is it?
That is a great point. I will check it out.

I think the thought is that the hangers are breaking under "normal" operating conditions versus sticks, abuse, bending and etc. The problem is the "sacrificial" hanger can take out the entire seat and chain stays as well as ruin the wheel when the der and chain goes into the spokes. My guys have experienced a few similar problems on other Cervelos.
